born and raised by a navy seal for a father, i was certainly accustomed to wearing military-esque apparel, particularly during a typical tomboy phase in elementary school (and yes one halloween i did dress in full camo, face paint absolutely included). so, needless to say, when i spotted this utility jacket with faux leather sleeves, i knew it belonged in my closet. i have a crush on cargo pockets, army green and cinched waists, what can i say? but to keep this staple piece spring, i paired it with a feminine, sheer, cream dress--im obsessed with the polka dotted texture and golden neckline. the strappy nude heels are a must (especially for only $40 at the nordstrom rack) to keep this look effortless and simple, while the jewelry adds a hint of edge and a touch of sparkle.
how do you wear combat-like clothing?
